Shridhar’s qualifications ‘are the best in the race’ | LETTER

I am writing to let the community know I have already cast my absentee ballot in the August primary. I have voted for Preeti Shridhar for Port of Seattle Position No. 4 because she is dedicated to the community and works tirelessly to make our whole area a better place to live and do business.

Preeti has served the city of Renton for a decade and has made it a priority to be sure everyone has a voice and that the city listens and acts on their concerns and interests. She will do the same as a port commissioner. Her qualifications are the best in the race and she has strong existing relationships with business and government organizations. I have known Preeti for 11 years as a woman of integrity and someone who brings people together.

I urge you to cast your ballot for Preeti Shridhar for Port of Seattle Commissioner Position No. 4
